Nameless Joy

So after the Book Thing i went back to Kate and Jason's to help with some packing. 9 boxes later Kate and I agreed it was naptime. She had told me that she was going to give me all of her 8.5X11 paper (almost 4 inches worth - woohoo!) and ran upstairs to get it. When she came back she had another bag for me. Declaring "this is for helping us today" i opened it to find THE BEST THANK YOU PRESENT EVER! Kate knitted me a pink and purple hedgehog that is so adorable that i squealed so loudly that Jason came running form the basement yelling "you could have told me you were giving it to her" before he got to the kitchen to see what the commotion was about. Could it be more Nikiriffic? For goodness' sakes I am wearing a matching shirt! The only problem now is that there is no name. Okay, also there are gender issues. 8 times out of 10 i refer to my hedgehog as a HE, but the other 2 i call it a SHE. Sooooo... suggest a name and if one sticks that seems right perhaps it will solve my gender issue as well.

1st Vote: "My Precious"
2nd Vote: "Falcor", Why should only dog-dragons get all the good names?

Names, names, names... HEDGEHOG names... Okay.

For alliteration: Hedwig. This plays well into the gender confusion. Also Hottentot, which is techically gender neutral.

For pop culture, aside from Sonic, you could call it Ookla (so it would be the namesake of our car), or Neelix, or Ron Jeremy.

Regardless of its name, I think it ought to have a title. How about "_____, the pink and purple purveyor of pleasant platitudes and portentious pronouncements."

Eh? Eh? Not bad, right? ;)

Wow. Those are incredible suggestions. I'll try them out on the hedgehog tonite and see if anything sticks.
